Chapter Summary

The World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) was founded on 14 July 1967 in Stockholm. The tasks of WIPO are: the conclusion of new international conventions and the modernization of the national legislation to protect the intellectual property; providing technical support to developing countries; the collection and publication of information; support to obtain protection in several states for inventions, trademarks and industrial designs; and the promotion of administrative cooperation among the member states. Every state that is a member of one of the two unions (Paris or Berne), or a member of the United Nations or one of their specialized agencies, or is a contracting party to the Statute of the International Court of Justice ( ICJ), or is invited by the General Assembly of WIPO, is entitled to become a member of WIPO.
